No prizes for guessing who provided this week’s position!

You’re Black, in a vulnerable backgame. Your timing & racing deficit are ok right now, but you’ll be in trouble soon if you can’t release those spare checkers stuck on the acepoint.

How best to maintain your timing until you can roll those 2’s – Play Pure or Hit? Many had loud opinions over the board, but only our own intrepid Dan F____ fought through the distractions and misdirections to find the right move, and then to win the game.

You’ll have to ask Dan for the reasons why 13/7, 6/5 is correct - he’s dying to tell you.
